As I am neither an arabic speaker nor reader I wonder what would be the most accurate typeface that will look like the latin family Helvetica.
Most of the arabic fonts I see have a calligraphic gesture… I wonder if the forms of the arab glyphs are drawn with the same rules than the one for the latin glyphs.
To summarize is an arabic font with calligraphic gesture more a serif font ? and is a linear arabic font more a sans serif font ?
and what about chinese glyphs ?
(My project has to include arab, chinese and latin languages, that is why I have all these questions :)
